    "MindNode 4 is a high quality mind mapping and brain storming app for iOS. The app works well and some people will find it very useful, especially those people who find it difficult to stay organized with long term projects. The one downfall to the app, for me, is that it's priced relatively high for an app at $14.99."

    "The great things about thinkfield are its infinite canvas, the abstraction of information when zooming out, the integration of various data types and the possibility to work with multiple users on one project. Currently it is just a basic version, I am looking forward to what is coming next.."

    "I am not used to the word "mind mapping" concept but it seems Ideament only does what a simple pen and paper is doing. Just open any writing app on your device, or seriously get a pen or paper, and you do not need to the app Ideament."
